I don't know how well it is documented, but you need gnu make.  OK,
everybody knows that.  But it has to called make.  And it has to be the
make that gets run when you type 'make'.

I have both dec's make and gnu make on my alpha, but gnu's make is called
gnumake.  I tried typing 'gnumake' to make R.  Not good enuf.  I had to
name it make, and make sure it was found (play with path stuff) before
dec's make.  Or temporarily rename the dec make into something else.
